I applied online – interviewed at University of Southern California.
Phone interview, simple questions. I think that could be very different for other positions, but in my case I was applying for a position for which I guess a very specific skill set was needed (risk analysis) and I happened to be a good match for it.
- Typical questions like, tell me about yourself or how do you see yourself in ten years times Answer Question
No negotiation phase, postdocs get standard salaries.

Phone interview. Presentation to the lab. More chatting on the phone about projects and work environment. Extremely trivial process as the lab is very new and not experienced.w
- None. No questions at all. Answer Question
Salary negotiation, but that obviously didn't get very far as it's a joke. Was desperate for a job, so I took it! It's the recession man!!

Postdoc is not a money making industry, so you will not gain so much by negotiation. However, for time being I am making enough money to move to next steps.
